PIOG Carseat FAIL

My Husband just called me and told me this story.

"I helped one of my Carry Out customers out to her car, she had her 2 year old son with her and her 18 mo niece. I offered to help buckle in one of the kids, she had the 2 year old in a booster and the 18 mo just sitting on the seat."

Seriously?! That's insane! Our 3.5 year old is still in a 5 point harness and our almost 2 year old is still rear-facing. If this woman got into an accident, both of these children would either die or be in critical condition.

How old are your kids and what type of car seats are they in?

He could get fired because he's in uniform. I told him if he ever sees something like that again, to take down the license plate and call the cops.

My kids are 9 and 12, and my husband has never been that involved in other peoples business.

I do not understand why people see this shit and then do not CALL THE DAMN POLICE.

If you see it, and that person pulls out of the parking lot and gets in a wreck on her way home, those kids are going to be killed.  You will be just as damn responsible as the jackass who didn't obtain and use appropriate seats.

Here he is in a 17 year old seat though!
My aunt doesn't throw away just about anything my cousin used!
He uses it as a seat in the house when we are here! Lol!

Heart attack for the carseat moms! It never gets used for its original purpose though!
